Network Rail misplaces new chief exec?

Exciting news from Transport Times Events!

TTE is led by the well connected transport guru Professor David Begg, a man with his fingers firmly on the industry's pulse !

So an event in January asking "Is the North missing out on Transport?" should be packed to the rafters with heavy weights.

According to a TTE email and their website the following are 'Confirmed Speakers'

  • Rt Hon Philip Hammond, Secretary of State for Transport
  • Cllr Richard Leese, Leader, Manchester City Council
  • Richard Eccles, Chief Executive, Network Rail
  • Julie Mills, Director, Greengauge 21
  • Adam Marshall, Director of Policy, British Chamber of Commerce
  • Prof Michael Parkinson, Director, European Institute of Urban Affairs, Liverpool John Moores University
  • Alexandra Jones, Chief Executive, Centre for Cities
Let Eye be the first to congratulate Richard Eccles on his promotion.

Presumably David Higgins has been told?
